Although the sand in Puka is not like power, but it's more quiet then white sand beach. If you go by yourself not group travel, you could stay longer and enjoy the quiet and beautiful scene.

The beach is beautiful and less crowded than many of the other beaches in Boracay. It can be a bit windy and rougher sea, therefore it is best for older kids and adults. Not that great for babies/toddlers.

Take your iPhone, go to Puka Beach, take a picture and there you go: you just made your first travel magazine cover photo. The beach is so beautiful you can no wrong by going there - just take a book with you (and some drinks, the prices on spot are outrageous) and just enjoy this piece of paradise on earth

I can't explain the beauty of this beach, it's relaxed, has loungers and little food outlets, everything you need for a day unwinding in the glorious sunshine, it's shell beach is like nothing iv seen or felt underfoot before, a must!

Beautiful like all of Boracay's beaches. This beach is on the north side of the island and much more secluded compared to the others. The water and colour of the sand are still sparkling blue and white respectively but the sand here is coarser than the sand on white beach. Still a great place to swim and sunbathe!

This beach is a nice place to visit & chill. Be aware that most of the restaurants down here close at dinner time if you were wanting a feed

A group of us went by boat to this deserted beach on the other side of the island from the main resorts. The boat rode up to the most perfect beach and we spent the day relaxing on the sand or at the table with the small group of locals there selling drinks; and we took a packed lunch along... More

This beach as the name goes the shell beach is really folled with sea shells shards. The view is as great compared as the stations area beach. But to get there you gotta get your flip flops on.

If you are seeking for a spot to make a 'romantic' photo session, you've found it. You might even be lucky and use someone else's flower-decorated pavilion (abundant wedding shooting!). Enjoy a fish on a grill, too - but never order a coral fish such as parrot fish or other colourful creatures, because they are carriers of about 30 species... More
